Cathedral lit for Remembrance and Hope this November
Sunday 4 November 2018
A tremendous thank you to all who contributed to, and attended our Remembrance Events
Wakefield Cathedral turns red for Remembrance and white for hope this Armistice Day.
A single poppy will be projected onto the tower of Wakefield Cathedral in the run up to Remembrance Sunday when it will be flooded red with light to mark the end of the Centenary of the First World War.
The Cathedral has been the spiritual heart of our city for over a thousand years and belongs to us all. As we mark the hundredth anniversary of the 1918 Armistice, it is our privilege to invite all people of goodwill to share in the programme of events at the Cathedral this Remembrance-tide. I hope that what we are offering will enable people of all faiths and no faith to feel a sense of community solidarity and to express a collective desire for peace and reconciliation between the nations.”
